  1. At some point I got rid of everything except the Waveshells 12, 13, & 14, and all is well. It looks like right now my Waves plugins are all either 12 or 14, so I probably could delete 13. But don't wanna push my luck! 🙄
  2. There have been some techniques discussed for dragging imported audio from an audio track into Cakewalk's time ruler in the track view to create a tempo map via ARA. The Cakewalk grid *should* adapt to the imported tempo with any changes included in the timeline. Setting the project tempo from an audio recording https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Tempo.12.html If you open up the Cakewalk Tempo track you can see the tempo region changes visually. I've also heard that the process isn't perfect, and some tweaking may be required, depending on your source material. I always work in the project grid and so really have no personal experience with importing external recordings, so no advice or experiences to share about using this feature. But it looks pretty cool and is probably worth checking out. Maybe others will chip in and share! Tempo track https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Tempo.04.html
  3. As he explained, when he ran the program that they sent to him it used a Chrome extension to capture his browser session cookies. Since the hackers now had authenticated copies of the session cookies, they could impersonate him and take over the YouTube account. Scary!!! 😧
  4. I think we all are getting older. 🤣 I started using Cakewalk about 5 years prior to this Sonar 2.2 announcement...
  5. I'm sure that's a great one if you are looking for a recreation of the DX7. F.'em was deliberately trying to avoid recreating yet another hardware emulation and demonstrate that FM synthesis itself is much larger in scope. The DX7 is the most popular example of vintage FM synthesis, and there is nothing wrong with that.
  6. Yup, that's what got my curiosity up! Sometimes weird is a nice change from the routine!
  7. I will add that on my computer there are two VST3 Presets folders. One folder for Focusrite (with sub-folders for Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor), the other folder for Plugin Boutique (with sub-folder for Virtual CZ). With the VST3 version of any of these plugins loaded in Cakewalk, the preset window in the plugin header shows "No Preset ", but the VST3 pull-down menu item "Load Factory Preset" opens the VST3 Presets folder. With the VST2 version of any of these plugins loaded, the preset window in the plugin header has a fully populated preset list, and displays the current preset name. For the bx_oberhausen here, both the VST2/VST3 plugins show "No Preset" in the Cakewalk plugin header. This plugin uses .papreset files that are located in a presets sub-folder for the synth under Program Files. These presets are accessed using the preset system within the plugin itself, rather than Cakewalk. In this case, there don't appear to be any factory .fxp or .vst3preset files that I can find. If I am missing anything here please correct me...

Cakewalk® Announces SONAR™ 2.2, Expanding Support for Windows-compatible Audio Hardware — Adds support for Windows ASIO drivers, in addition to WDM and MME drivers; Free 2.2 Download for Registered SONAR 2.x Users — https://www.cakewalk.com/Press/Release/1004/01-16-03-SONAR22 Press release archive: https://www.cakewalk.com/Press/2003
  9. OK, thanks! That link worked. I had tried the Reddit link here in both Firefox and Chrome, and they both ignored it. Normally don't have any issues accessing Reddit from these browsers. Strange thing is that after testing again, found out that it was my "Disconnect" add-on that I use in both browsers to block web trackers that was blocking my access in this instance. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/ All good now though! Thanks again!
  10. So get the synth deal now, and watch out for another 50% off sale on sound packs. Maximum savings! Make Larry proud!
  11. Not a chance in the southern Caribbean, LOL!!! 😉
  12. If you get the synth for $26, plus an expansion that suits you, you are still getting a lot of value for $76. The synth itself lists for $179, but occasionally goes on a rare deep sale like this. Other sales are more like only 50% off. This is a good opportunity to grab a powerful FM synth with more capabilities than other FM synths. If you can find the time and are so inclined, this one might be a good synth to get into sound design with. As far as the price of content packs, it appears to me that Tracktion is trying to pull in more revenue from content, while offering discounts on their flagship software.
